Appel Thief Figurine

This is a figurine made by Melchior at Hoechst in about 1770. It is of a mother and her daughter talking with a basket of appels next to them from which a little boy is stealing them and handing them over to another little boy who is his partner in crime. That boy is stuffing them in a small bag. It is 6.75 inches tall and 6.5 inches in diameter. It is in great condition with a restored chip to the pink hat, two fingers of the little boy and a painted over chip to the base. The figure is marked underneath with an underglaze blue wheel mark. Also incised SI and N40. Please email me for more information or other pictures.
